3 out of 5 stars As everyone says...

Tricky move at top, assuming I did it right, by going right.

We did the layback... i.e. don't take the obvioius crack straight up at the crux. You'll find yourself wanting a right foot that doesn't exist... instead, go left 2 feet and layback up and the step over to a good foot.

4 out of 5 stars First Seconding Climb on Trad Gear

Easy climb with a tough move at the top.
Layback the crack or jump out onto the rock with nothing below!
If he reads this, big thanks to Tom from Buffalo for leading those two kids up!
